It's been just 5 months since OnePlus dropped its surprising OnePlus 3
: a well-polished phone with flagship-grade Snapdragon 820 system chip, a whopping 6GB of RAM and a refined design.
But - true to its slogan - it did not settle, and has now introduced the OnePlus 3T
. Why? Simple: the Snapdragon 821, the next most powerful system chip went out and OnePlus did not want to keep its consumers stuck with an older chip. It has made some other small, but welcome improvements along the way, but also hiked the prices a bit.
Don't worry, the OnePlus 3T
is still our top pick in the value-for-money category. Take a look at the OnePlus 3T prices and see how they compare against two other phones with comparable specs.
Good news is that the OnePlus 3T is officially available in the United States, the UK and Europe (it's also coming to India at an undisclosed date later), and it comes with an officially warranty and support. So when can you get it?
Here is the official OnePlus 3T release date across various markets:
- November 22nd in the United States and Canada
- November 28th in the United Kingdom and Europe
- Coming later on (no release date announced) to India
In the United States, the 3T will work on AT&T and T-Mobile with full support for their 4G LTE bands. Unfortunately, the phone does not support CDMA, so it will not work on Verizon Wireless and Sprint.
OnePlus will also hold its pop-up events for the 3T in a couple of cities in Europe, and it's a holding an AMA event on Reddit on November 22nd, the date when it goes on sale. Expect Carl Pei and other top OnePlus executives to answer all the questions that build up around the OnePlus 3T then, and in the meantime feel free to check out the 7 new features of the phone over the OnePlus 3
